When she was 18, Cleopatra became queen and pharaoh of Egypt at the death of her father who had declared his daughter and son Ptolemy XII joint rulers. The queen wished to rule on her own but her brother and his supporters did not stand for this and she was forced to flee. When Julius Caesar arrived in Alexandria, Cleopatra knew he could be a valuable ally. She had servants smuggle her in a carpet to Caesar. She tumbled out of the carpet and asked the Roman leader for aid. He became entranced with her; they became lovers, he helped her regain her rule and she bore him a son.
After Caesar's death, she became allied with another Roman, Marc Antony. They married and had three children. Their great love was doomed, however, and after Cleopatra heard of Marc Antony's death, she killed herself.
